Unit 3 The Old Unicorn, Orwell Place, IP4 1BB

Ipswich

2-5 players

60 minutes

The HMS Unicorn is an old sturdy submarine. On its last voyage before being decommissioned it seems the old sea dog has decided that its final resting place is here, in the middle of the ocean.
The generators have died and you have enough power for the engines and oxygen for just a short period. You've got 60 minutes to get the generators online and save your crew.

Simple yet effective set design that made us feel as if we were on the ship. Good range of puzzle styles with varying degrees of difficulty. One of the stronger games that I've played at the Escape franchise.

Nice simple set design but immersive enough to feel like you’re in a sub. You do have to use something more than once, this isn’t mentioned in the briefing so we did waste a bit of time assuming it followed standard ER rules. That’s probably just an us problem though! There’s a couple difficult puzzles but nothing too strenuous, we were told we struggled on the easy puzzles & not the hard ones. One of the better games at Escape Ipswich.

originalbroken tech

I like the concept of the game but sadly on the day some tech was broken, adding time and requiring the host to come in. We requested extra time to allow for this but weren’t given any, which felt unfair.

 One of our torches was broken meaning that one player was very hampered by being unable to see properly, making the experience frustrating.

I do think this would be a good room without these set backs, and this was some months ago so hopefully back on track now.

quite difficult

Reportedly their hardest room, slightly more challenging than the others but good fun. Half a mark taken off for basic room design, but this is consistent throughout the company.
